How to Have Chronic Care ConversationsNov 23, 2021
⭐️ CME Opportunity for this video below ⭐️
I love caring for patients with chronic conditions now, but it wasn’t always the case. Like so many new grads, I struggled with caring for patients managing chronic conditions -- where to start, how to proceed, feeling like we weren’t making any progress towards “control” of those conditions (diabetes, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, etc).
When I was a new nurse practitioner, I was incredibly focused on diagnostic algorithms and medication management. This, of course, is crucial to know, but isn’t truly what moves the needle in chronic conditions.
How to Have Chronic Care Conversations in Primary Care
In this episode, I cover:
✅ What moves the needle in chronic conditions
✅ Normalize what and why this is so hard
✅ What my dog has taught me about caring for patients (and can help you too)
✅ A practical framework for navigating the management of these conditions
